ASCLEPIOS Wellness and Healing Retreat in Costa Rica believes in the power of harmony and balance. Costa Rica is a peaceful democratic country that does not have an army and loves, respects and protects its environment. Located in Central America it borders both the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, between Nicaragua and Panama. Costa Rica has tropical seasons, several active volcanoes (Poas, Arenal, Turrialba and Rincon de la Vieja) as well as beautiful beaches that stretch 225 kilometres on the Caribbean coast and 1103 kilometres on the Pacific coast.
Asclepios is located in El Cacao de Alajuela a short distance from San Jose, skirting the Poas Volcano. There are 12 unique rooms, a well equipped gym and a spa with a team of highly skilled spa therapists and talented holistic practitioners. With a weekly holistic activity programme including yoga and meditation you are truly spoilt for choice. Take advantage of the stunning ionized pool, offering a balanced wellness experience.
The staff are highly professional and knowledgeable with a deep understanding and passion for helping their guests achieve physical, emotional and spiritual balance. Take advantage of the wonderful facilities offered at the resort. As a guest you will also have the choice to eat for your blood type where all meals will be prepared for you as an individual and your blood type.
The first course is vegetarian and consists of raw seasonal vegetables, salad, steamed vegetables and other vegetarian antipasti, using seasonal vegetables grown in their organic gardens when possible or sourced locally. Your second course will be a choice of à la carte meals, specific to you and your blood type. All meals are served in the Higia Restaurant, which also has an open-air dining pavilion facility when weather permits. The restaurant has stunning views of the sugarcane, coffee plantations and volcanoes with the soothing sound of the river in the background. The food here is bioenergetic and contains the freshest produce locally sourced.

As many of you are probably aware – “from” prices can be misleading. This led to Electric Bloom being reluctant to advertise in this way. However, we have listened to our clients who expressed an opinion that a “guide” price would be helpful when first looking for their Wellness holiday. Our “guide” prices are just that, a guide but, as most of you know, high season, late flight bookings, offers and other factors can see prices fluctuate up or down. We have tried to be as honest and realistic as possible so show both low and high season rates. We hope to get as close to the “guide” prices as we possibly can. We always endeavour to get you the best possible price for your holiday – a promise we wholeheartedly commit to keeping. Click on the programme you are interested in to see our price “guide”. All with peace of mind with ATOL protection.
